GT2 Timing Belt
GT2 belts are commonly used on 3D printers for their accuracy and reliability. The GT2 belt profile is specifically designed to minimise backlash, which is a necessary feature in most 3D printers and CNC machines - where the direction of travel changes frequently, and where any positional error must be minimised.
GT2 belt can come in a variety of different widths. The most common width - used in the majority of 3D printer builds - is 6mm. However, some machines may use 10mm wide belt, particularly if they are larger than average or intended to be particularly sturdy. 10mm-wide GT2 belt is also common in CNC machine builds, where machines are typically larger and there is more force to contend with on the moving axes.
We carry GT2 belt made of two different materials:
The 'standard' GT2 belt we carry is made from rubber and is reinforced with fibreglass strands that run through the belt. This results in a belt that is flexible, but still quite resistant to stretching.
We also carry belt manufactured from polyurethane and reinforced with steel strands. This belt is slightly thicker, and not quite as flexible, but it is significantly more resistant to stretching and works better in situations where the belt is very tightly tensioned.

Note: Product is sold in 1m lengths. Order multiple quantities for larger lengths - e.g. 5 pieces for 5m of belt.
